"Teaching with Gender" Book Series

Volume 1: Teaching with Memories


Teaching with memories discusses the ways in which one can use the assignment to write the life story of a ‘foremother’ as an educational tool. This book includes descriptions of good practice, short articles about the analysis of specific sources, annotated bibliographies and a wealth of examples of assignments and questions that will help teachers within or outside institutions of higher education, to work with this format. The examples come from many different European countries. The book offers reflections on the way women’s historians can connect research on women’s memory with teaching in different European educational contexts. Because the contributors come from all parts of Europe, this book is especially helpful for educators who teach international students. This collection was prepared in the framework of ATHENA2 Socrates European Advanced Thematic Network of Activities in Women’s Studies.
